Mastercraft Catalog With Josh Letchworth

One of the crazies and most insalely action packed, fun shoots we have done in a while was for the new mastercraft catalog. Which of course could not have been as visually appealing as it is without the magic trigger finger of the wonderful Josh Letchworth. Thanks to everyone who helped make this idea come to life. It looks amazing. Check out more images at Josh’s website.


Nike Vision Winter Wear

I have to say that alot of the shoots we produce end up in our design department and i dont end up seeing the final results until they are in print of online. Its kind of exciting that way. To wait and see how our vision in the photo department corresponds with their design needs.

A recent example is the nike vision website. GO BOYS! Nice job with the shoot. The images look almost just as we directed and produced. We love it when that happens.

A special thanks to Adam Haynes,  Mark Thompson and Colin for modeling and riding. As well as  Tim Zimmerman and Bump Films for shooting.

Travis Pastrana gets fashionably rad

If you open up the latest issue of GQ, you’ll see lots of metro dude stuff. But you also may find X-Games champ and lunatic extraordinaire Travis Pastrana gracing the pages in some damn fine suits. Travis rallied around the streets of downtown LA with photographer Peggy Sirota for the fashion piece on the summer’s “daredevil-ish” looks. Always fun/weird to see one of our own action sports athletes get all dressed up like a 9-5’er.
If you wanna be styled-out like Travis, the full article is here.


Lighttrac for iPad- an outdoor photographer’s best friend

Winter is over in Portland! The sun is coming back out! I’m sure I’ve just completely jinxed the pacific NW with that, but still, it’s exciting be able to go outside again. With longer days and sunnier skies, photographers can get shooting back outdoors again. So here is a great tool for anyone depending on that big ball of fire in the sky to light up their models. Lighttrac is an app for iPad and iPhone that tracks and forecasts the position of the sun according to the shoot location- sunrise, sunset, directional light, time, duration, angle, everything you would need to get the sun where you wanted it without scouting the location days ahead. The app costs $3.99, which is well worth it to impress your friends with your new-found mastery of ambient light.


Swimsuit Cover runs in the Iooss family


The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue hit newsstands last week. Many of you may know of the great Walter Iooss jr., the legendary Sports Illustrated photographer who has amassed 11 covers after shooting for the magazine for numerous decades. But times have changed for Iooss jr., most notably because of his son and fellow photographer, Bjorn.
On a run-of-the mill filler shoot, Bjorn was asked to snap some images of Russian model Irina Shayk (along with a few other models), “purely for advertorial purposes.” A week before the magazine was released, the younger Iooss was informed his shot had made the cover, beating out hundreds of other images from seasoned swimsuit vets, including dear old dad. The stranger part? Shooting swimsuit models is the last thing he planned on shooting. Bjorn considers himself a fine art photographer, claiming he couldn’t care less about sports. “I’ve kind of always tried to do my own thing. To be in this position is a little bit out of my comfort zone.” He seems to be doing just fine to me, especially considering he just schooled his own dad.

A magazine containing the perfect mix of fashion, action, ocean, art, and music. Its a great entertainer for those of us girls who like to get out there in lineup next to the guys, then head home and blast our old records while picking out our favorite outfit.

My Week in Utah with Nikita Outerwear Team.

I’ll give ya the quick and dirty, this was one of my more favorite freelance photo shoots to date, It may have been due to the surprising openness of everyone involved to G.S.D. no matter what! All the girls were awesome and open to suggestion and copped zero attitude, I know some male riders that are more high maintenance to deal with compared to any of these girls. Ha. Nikita has a solid group of riders, killing it from the pow, park, pipe, streets and their focused. Special props go to Nikita office crew that absolutely killed everything from buying large amounts of avocados and string cheese daily to keep the small army shredding to putting a roof over our heads. I like to think I came out of this trip with everything I set to accomplish and like 20+ new friends I can’t wait to run into in the near future. Well enough rambling… go to Yobeat to get the full scoop as told by Brooke Geery! Make sure to check All the pics and DAILY video coverage! Click here.

Thanks Nikita!


Von Iva by Plain T

I just came home from the Von Iva show at Doug Fir, and this sunday night show was fire! Those three girls put on an amazingly energetic show and the crowd was no let down! Keyboardist Rebecca Kupersmith was really stoked on the poster i did for the show (props for Nemo!) and once that trio got on stage is was loud, fast and personal. Kelly was throwing her drums and Jillian was unbuttoning my flannel and flashing the fans! The Portland crowd roared and the girls came out for one more song after they finished their set, the show was ferocious.

 

 


Baker Banked Slalom w/ Jake Stangel

Portland photog, Jake Stangel took a trip up to the 24th annual Mt.

Solid portraits and and words from the riders really give you an “insiders” feel to what the Banked is all about. Target and Playstation be damned, this is real snowboarding! Check it out here.
